Charles Saatchi founded the Saatchi & Saatchi advertising agency in 1970, which quickly grew to become the largest in the world. He started collecting art at about the same time and opened his first public gallery, a 30,000 sq. ft. ex-paint factory in Boundary Road, London, in 1985. His new gallery occupying the 70,000 sq. ft. Duke of York HQ in Kings Road, London opened in October 2008.Review:
'Think Pascal's Pensees crossed with a celebrity interview in Heat. ... if you want to hear what the man whose taste has shaped contemporary visual culture has to say, this volume provides a pretty good pocket-sized introduction. ... The answers feel fresh and frank. [Saatchi] is refreshingly plain-spoken. ... For the price of a cocktail, the reader is offered an entertaining conversation with a complex but personable character.' The Times 'for such a household name, Saatchi has a remarkably low profile ... of all his achievements, this is his most extraordinary: to have become a celebrity, but totally on his own terms and with his privacy sacrosanct. This is what's special about the book. ... this book tells you about how to live.' The Mail on Sunday 'frank and often hilarious' Sloane Square magazine 'often quite robust answers ... informative, entertaining and quite spikily readable' The Independent
